Thanks!  You know, even the fixer uppers needs some wacky headlines to get people's attention. They really seem to be so easily overlooked and are usually some of the toughest to come up with verbage for.  Usually if a listing is practically blank, i know it's a fixer upper!

Why thank you!  I have a bit of an addiction to marketing, so it's good I get a chance to post my ideas here, otherwise everyone around me might strangle them for driving them nuts! lol  I actually have a marketing background - I worked as an advertising assistant and in sports marketing, as well as promotions for several years.  I just love marketing! lol

Jane,

This sure is a fabulous list. Not sure if you've heard on the site www.reallysold.com which generates 15,000 different headings and words for agents just like the ones above.

Some of my faves from www.reallysold.com to add to your fabulous list:

Very Viewtiful!
Yeah - it's small, but who wants the in-laws to visit anyway?
So Much More than Walls, Ceiling & Floor
A Property with A Future - Yours!
Come On Down - The Price Is Right!
Home of the Week - Bargain of the Year!
Google This – “best home in area”!
A Better Position than You’ll Find in the Karma Sutra!
Heaven Is A Place on Earth
A Position with 52 Weeks Holiday!
Penguins love the cold – you don’t have to!
Do You See The Cup As Half Empty Or Half Full?
It’s Not Pretty but It Has Good Bone Structure
Dress Circle Locale, Mini Skirt Price!
More Shabby Than Chic
Who really needs to swing a cat anyway?

I think they are great.  Maybe someone can help me with creating an eye catching banner for "Massage Therapy".  What can you put on a banner to draw the people in to book an appointment.  Must be clean.
